The ski racers Louis-Pierre Hélie (CAN) and Marco Sullivan (USA) who both crashed in the final training run for the World Cup downhill in Bormio were flown to the Innsbruck University Clinic on Wednesday.

The two North Americans sustained small blood clots in their brain after their fall. According to information of doctors, Hélie (24) and Sullivan (30) are both in stable condition and responsive. There is no immediate danger to life.

It must now be observed how the pressure in the brain is going to change,” said a spokesman for the Canadian team about Hélie who will turn 25 on New Year's Day.
